3 Healthy Cocktails for a Guilt Free Holiday Season

3 Healthy Cocktails for a Guilt Free Holiday Season

Posted by Chelsea Miller on

The holiday season is a time of gathering, entertaining guests, and spending quality time with those we love. But if we’re not careful, it can also become a time of overindulging in rich food and drinks that aren't exactly good for us. We’re looking at you, eggnog.

But we’re not here to bring ya down—who says you can't enjoy a cocktail while still being healthy? It’s all about balance.

These three cocktails are perfect for those who want to indulge a little, without all the guilt. Adding in some probiotic goodness to your drink will help ease your mind—and electrolyte-rich brine will help with a hangover, too. We’ll toast to that!
